Are people crazy? Sometimes it seems so, especially when it comes to deeply-held beliefs and values. Try to have a discussion about politics or religion with someone who has very different views than you do. You will probably walk away frustrated and a bit angry at how stubborn and pigheaded the other person is. “Why can’t they see what is so simple and clear?” you ask yourself.
This video explains at least some of why these difficult conversations happen. Maybe some of these ideas have already occurred to you, but few people have put together the whole package. I got the basic idea for this video from a sermon preached by my good friend Pastor John Lorenzana. I hope you find it enlightening and enjoyable. Michael Bogart
